Enterprise-Ready Cloud Storage Solutions
When does it make business sense to move your data to the cloud?
Cloud storage can have many benefits, including scalability, flexibility, and cost. To benefit the most from cloud, it takes a well-thought-out plan. Are you going to use cloud for long-term archive and retention? Or do you need to build a recovery system in the cloud? Will you just run test/dev, or will cloud also support your processing and production environment?

Cloud Storage for Backup & Archive
Disaster recovery, backup, and data archival are some of the primary uses for cloud storage. This can pose problems if your organization stores a lot of data. There can be challenges with bandwidth and backup times. Many storage vendors have addressed this with appliances that reside on-premises and consolidate backup data.
The key to any disaster recovery or backup plan is to ensure that you can restore your systems within your set timeline. SLAs for cloud solutions can get confusing. We help you navigate the available vendors to find the solution that is right for your organization.
